Rosa Pink Above All PP13,877 ('Chewpearl') - This miniature climbing rose grows to 6 feet tall by 3 feet wide or wider if trained horizontally and has small, glossy, dark green leaves. The fragrant, satin pink double flowers are produced in profusion from late spring until first frost and each flower can last 6 to 10 days on the plant. Has proved disease resistant for five years in a California field trial. Full sun, moist well-drained soil. Hardy to USDA Zone 6. Winner of the Argentine Bronze Medal for a Miniature Rose in 2001. The result of crossing the miniature yellow Rose 'Laura Ford' with the pink hybrid tea 'Congratulations'. Bred by Chris Warner in 1998 in Great Britain and propagated in the US by Greenheart Nursery. This plant is usually found listed as Rosa 'Star Performer' but because of possible trademark issues its trade name was changed to Pink Above All. The plant was patented in the US as Rosa 'Chewpearl'. We grew this plant from 2003 until 2008.  Information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips would aid others in growing Rosa Pink Above All PP13,877.
